Hearing His Voice: Meeting Jesus in the Garden of Promise


Hearing His Voice: Meeting Jesus in the Garden of Promise

by Meredith Swift  

DESCRIPTION

Do you feel lost and isolated, as though you don’t matter?

Do you feel tired and stressed, in need of replenishment and refreshment?
Do you want to find out more about the One who loves you more deeply, and knows you more thoroughly, than you could ever imagine?
HEARING HIS VOICEDo you want to find out practical ways to grow your faith and walk more closely with Jesus?
Then this book is for you!

Written during recovery

Meredith wrote this book during recovery from an extremely challenging time in her life – having gone through a divorce, resignation from her long term teaching job and relocation to a different city to access better services for her autistic daughter. Her daughter was also very unwell at this time, becoming bedridden by a mystery illness. All of this had left Meredith feeling exhausted, fearful, alone and very isolated.

Guidance of Scripture

Meredith knew she needed to strengthen her fragile spirit and overcome the fear of this time. She sought the guidance of Scripture and the assistance of the Lord Jesus Christ, knowing that only He could bring comfort and healing at the deep levels required. Meredith knew that her relationship with her Creator meant He was available 24/7 and so she started to schedule regular time where she communicated with Him.

The Garden of Promise

Covered with prayer and Scripture, Meredith visualised meeting Jesus in a beautiful garden that she came to know as the Garden of Promise – so named for the promises of goodness and grace found liberally throughout the Scriptures.
This book is the result of these communications – an unforgettable and inspiring journey of encouragement and healing, where Jesus spoke new life into Meredith’s being. Her feelings of isolation lifted and she felt herself soothed, replenished and deeply loved by spending this time with the Lord Jesus Christ.
You, too, are invited to go on this journey through the pages of this book as you hear His voice and meet Jesus in the Garden of Promise.

WHAT IS LOVE? Does the Bible tell us?


DISCLAIMER for my religious friends who believe differently- Mark 9-37-39, John 13-34-36 and 1 John 5-2. (2)

12345 

He interrupted my writing as he was hitting away at my tap. I could see him accidently drop a washer down the gurgler. That’s when he exclaimed;

I HATE RELIGION!-“I HATE religion!”

“Why is that?” I asked, wondering if some of the Scripture verses on my walls could have triggered that comment.

“Because religion is the cause of most of the wars and hatred in the world,” my newfound friend Brad said.

I asked him if he really believed that and without even thinking about it, he shot back at me, “I do not believe it, I’m convinced of it!”

“All religions?” I asked him.

Without hesitation, he responded, “ALL of them.”

I said, “Funny that because my religion tells me that we are to love each other.”

“What religion would that be?” He quizzed.

“I love God’s Word,” I said.“Mmpphh, you’re one of those Christians,” He said.

“Mmpphh, you’re one of those Christians,” He said.

Clearly, Brad was assuming things. What was I to say to that? I did not know what he meant when he said, ‘one of those,’ but I wanted him to like me and not hate me because of my religion. But more than that, I wanted to convey to him that my religion is one of love. And I was not quite sure how to go about that because Brad clearly had preconceived notions about Christianity and what it entails being a Christian or being someone that loves God’s Word.
I didn’t know what his preconceived ideas were, other than that they weren’t positive.

I LOVE GODS WORDSo I repeated what is true for me and said, “I love God’s Word.”

Brad came over and sat down next to me. “You mean the Bible don’t you?”

I nodded affirmatively.

Well, that really got him going. He stood up again and walked up and down my living room with the spanner in his left hand, waving his arms up and down in despair. “The Bible has caused more wars and deaths and calamity than all other religions combined! How anyone can believe in fairy tales like that is beyond me.”

Maybe it was premature when earlier I referred to Brad as my newfound friend. My daughter had brought him over to fix a couple of leaky taps and a gate that had come off its hinges. I treated him as a friend because I was grateful that he came to fix a few things for a reasonable fee but I do not like it when people refer to God’s Word as fairy tales. At the same time, I recognise that this reference is generally used by people who have never read God’s Word.

I did not want him to go on a rant of no return. For the sake of our now seemingly fragile friendship, I decided to find out what got him going like that.

“You seem pretty passionate about your anti-religion stance Brad. Where is all that coming from?”

He sat down next to me again. “Mimi, come on, you can see what’s going on in the world, -If it weren't for religion...-surely? If it weren’t for religion…”
His voice trailed off and as he was about to take in a breath of fresh air, I noted,

“Religion doesn’t do anything Brad. It’s people and their interpretation of religion that can be a problem.”

He got up again, down. Up once more. He sure was passionate about the subject.

“So Mimi, you’re saying that the Bible doesn’t tell people to kill each other if they don’t believe according to the teachings?” And before I could answer, he continued. “You do know about the Inquisition and all the ‘Holy Wars’ that have been raging throughout the ages?”

You do know about the Inquisition and all the Holy Wars-

“Yes, I do Brad,” I said. And then I asked him, “Do you know about God’s commandments?”

Brad shook his head as he walked back to the tap. “What do they have to do with anything,” he asked. “Does anyone even care about those anymore?”

“Good question Brad and pertinent too. You’re absolutely right. For all sorts of different reasons lots of ‘believers’ indeed don’t think that these commandments apply to them. Many are of the opinion that their faith sets them above the law.

To get back to your other questions Brad, yes, I know about the Inquisition and all the GODS COMMANDMENTS‘Holy Wars’ and as far as I’m concerned the commandments have everything to do with this. And you know why?”

He just stood there looking at me not quite sure where the conversation was going. So I continued,
“I tell you why the commandments matter. They matter because the commandments tell us not to kill, not to steal, not to lie, not to commit adultery, not to covet, to honour our elders and so on. This is what God’s Word teaches us right from the very beginning. The commandments set a moral standard for the whole of society.

We were taught to be nice to our neighbour and to treat foreigners with kindness and the Bible tells us that those simple ten rules constitute love. They are a benchmark, a measure to live by and live up to.”

Brad looked at me and said, “Sounds wonderful. Mimi. Here’s a reality check for you, NO one is paying any attention or listening to any of those rules, nor following them.”

“Exactly my point Brad. It isn’t for me to judge if anyone is following God’s rules; what I notice however is that many believers follow all kinds of rules but not necessarily The Ten.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful indeed if we were to follow those ten simple rules? There’s PEOPLE INTERPRETnothing wrong with those rules, is there? There’s nothing wrong with the Bible either.  What’s wrong is that all through the ages and still today, people interpret God’s Word any way they like to suit their own purposes.

The Bible tells us to love one another. We’re taught that Jesus’ disciples will be known for their love for each other, we’re encouraged to turn the other cheek, bless our enemies and we’re taught that God is love and if we do not love we do not have God in us.

Can you find fault with any of that Brad?”

He looked bewildered. “But Mimi, no one is DOING that ‘loving thing.’ All these so called religious people are killing each other!”

“I know that Brad,” I said.

“Does that make the commandments wrong or the people?

 

-If it weren't for religion...- (1)Brad scratched his head as he asked; “What are these again, the commandments?”

So Brad my friend, this is for you.

God’s Holy Word from the very beginning from Mount Sinai.

Does the Bible tell us what love is? Yes, the Bible tells us what love is.

God is love and He tells us that not lying, killing, stealing etc constitutes love.

This is love according to the prophets with a little help from 'Moments in Love.' Music courtesy of Art of Noise.

I write about this all the time because I am passionate about it. Here is another article that gives you biblical references  and here also for our ‘love’ theme.

And here is a repeat of the disclaimer for my fellow religious friends who believe differently from me; I love you.

Grocery list


FORWARDED MESSAGE

about the power of prayer

I received the ‘GROCERY LIST’ as a forwarded message and thought to post it here because it gave me food for thought with regards to the power of prayer and the weight we give to it.
SQ Helper set 24
Thank you to the kind friend who forwarded this message to me.

GROCERY LIST

Louise Redden, a poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face, walked into a grocery store. She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries.
She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food.
John Longhouse, the grocer, scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store at once.
Visualizing the family needs, she said: ‘Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can.’
John told her he could not give her credit, since she did not have a charge account at his store.
Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the conversation between the two. The customer walked forward and told the grocer that he would stand good for whatever she needed for her family. The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, ‘Do you have a grocery list?’
Louise replied, ‘Yes sir.’ ‘O.K’ he said, ‘put your grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries.’
Louise hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she reached into her purse and took out a piece of paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still bowed.
The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement when the scales went down and stayed down.
The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and said begrudgingly, ‘I can’t believe it.’
The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries on the other side of the scales. The scale did not balance so he continued to put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more.
The grocer stood there in utter disgust. Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement.
It was not a grocery list, it was a prayer, which said:
‘Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands.’
The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and stood in stunned silence.
Louise thanked him and left the store. The other customer handed a fifty-dollar bill to the grocer and said; ‘It was worth every penny of it. Only God knows the weight of a prayer.’
After you’ve read this, say a prayer of thanks for all your blessings. That’s all you have to do.
Peace and Blessings… In God we trust!
Praise God, He is All Merciful.

GREAT SHALL BE THE PEACE OF YOUR CHILDREN


BIBLE PROMISE

GREAT SHALL BE THE PEACE OF YOUR CHILDREN

GREAT SHALL BE THE PEACE OF THY CHILDREN

Aren’t your children behaving today? Aren’t they acting according to what you taught them? Do they find themselves in undesirable situations?

This is a good time to take hold of GOD’s promise that, ‘Great shall be the peace of your children.’

Thank you Father, for keeping our children safe and out of harm’s way. I’m praying for both my children today that

 The LORD will bless them, and keep them:
The LORD make his face shine upon them, and be gracious unto them:
The LORD lift up his countenance upon them and give them peace.
And I pray that the LORD will put His name upon my children and bless them.

Just for fun I’ll share the song that I wrote for each of my children.

The first one is called, ‘Mother of an Angel.’

And the second one is called, ‘Brighter Than The Sun.’

You can find both these tracks also under my favourite people credits and links.

Victorious: Living a life of complete freedom and victory in Christ


BOOK LAUNCH 

You can obtain a free copy of VICTORIOUS from Amazon on June 20-22, 2016.

Victorious: Living a life of complete freedom and victory in Christ

written by Barry Tallis

BOOK DESCRIPTION

God wants us to live victorious lives. But many of us are unaware we are in a battle or how to fight from a position of victory. Have you every thought about what it takes to have a joyous, successful, fulfilled life?

VICTORIOUSGod desires for us to live a life full of victory. He doesn’t want us to just “wade through life” until we go to heaven. He has given us His divine nature to move from a position of defeat, to a position of victory. VICTORIOUS has been designed to give you insight and direction on how to live this life. This book is for people who are tired of letting the enemy of this world triumph in their life, causing them to be disconnected and separated from God, even while sitting in the seats at church.

By implementing the principles and truths detailed in this book, many have come to realize the truth that the battle has already been won, and have started living it out on a daily basis.

You can live a life free from the enemy. From the constant attacks on your mind, body, and soul. You do not need to struggle another day with habitual sin. You can be free from it and the shame, guilt, and self-condemnation. As you read VICTORIOUS, you will experience a deeper connection to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

Review

If you were to implement the truth and principles as detailed in Barry’s book it becomes easy to realise that the battle is already won and to start living the victory. We will become victorious once we start living according to God’s truth and are obedient to His Word.

In VICTORIOUS Barry describes the various names that the devil is known by. This makes it easier for us, his readers, to recognise and resist evil. In addition, Barry summarises what the devil stands for  and who he is by saying that ‘Satan is a “spiritual supernatural being who opposed God and continuous to oppose Him and seeks to disrupt the plans and purposes of God’s people and lead them astray and into rebellion against God.”

I like how Barry quotes Scripture verses about the evil one and dissects the meaning of these verses because this makes it easier to recognise what is going on in our daily lives.

With Barry’s guidance, we gain a better understanding of how to see evil for what it is and how to resist evil and fight it with the appropriate verses and tools. Well done Barry I enjoyed reading the first part of your book and am looking forward to reading the rest of it.

How To Hear God: A Seven Day Guide


BOOK LAUNCH NEW RELEASES

HOW TO HEAR GOD is available for FREE from Amazon on June 24, 25 and 26, 2016.

How To Hear God: A Seven Day Guide to hearing God, Book 1.

by Ian Banner

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Would you like to hear God more in your life than you do?
Do you hear stories of people who claim to hear God and wonder if that could ever happen to you?

IAN PICTUREAre you finding your Christian life a struggle and just wish God was more intimate, more involved?

Would you like some practical advice on how you can hear God?

If you answered any of these questions ‘Yes’, then this book is for you. Its purpose is to help you learn to hear God’s voice and to encourage you to do what he tells you.

Author Ian Banner says, “I have the privilege of being part of a team that regularly travels to preach, pray and prophecy to people.

This book is full of all the tips and lessons God has taught us over the past 5 years.

If you follow the advice written here, based on my very practical experience, I believe anyone with a heart to be used by God can learn to hear God’s voice and learn to pray, give words of knowledge and prophecy safely and effectively for other people.”

The book covers how to hear God yourself and how to use that gifting via words of knowledge, or prophecies, in sermons, when praying for people, running meetings or leading response times in church.

Chapters include 
Baby Steps in hearing God and Prophecy
What do I mean by Personal Prophecies?
Co-operating with God in your life and ministry.
How to pray with people safely.
How to develop you gifting from occasionally praying for people in small groups to calling out prophecies and words of knowledge in large meetings.
What do do when things go wrong?

Plus other blogs, books and apps you can use to help you.

REVIEW

Delightful book from a devout man

HOW TO HEAR GOD is a seven step, practical beginners guide to hearing God, words of knowledge and the gift of Prophecy. It was initially released a few years ago and this is an updated edition.

What I love about this book is that Ian gives examples from daily life to illustrate the points he is making and he does this really well. So well in fact that I read the book in one setting.

Ian encourages his readers to read a little bit every day however and to have a journal handy  for note taking.
It is mentioned in HOW TO HEAR GOD that a separate study guide for this book is available, which contains extra exercises and notes. You can use this individually or in small groups. This guide is available for free.

Ian explains what a personal prophecy is and how we can know that the information which comes to us is from God. He explains it in such a way that I think; ‘We should all know about this.’ This is book One and I’m already looking forward to book Two.

This is a delightful book filled with personal anecdotes and directions of a devout man who clearly walks with God and would love nothing better than for others to do the same. I highly recommend this book for anyone who struggles to hear God’s voice in their life and also for us who can do with some fine tuning.

AUTHOR BIO

Hi – I am Ian Banner and I have a few passions …

First I am passionate about the God whom I serve. I am a 52 years old born-again charismatic Christian who lives in Sheffield, UK.

I am passionate about my family. I have been married to my wife Merle for over 25 years – we met at university and we have 2 lads, studying at University. We live and worship at a local church in Sheffield.

I am the co-director of a charity in Uganda, called Forever Caring Homes. The charity is designed to look after young children who have lost their parents through the AIDS epidemic that swept through Africa. It’s quite small, and lots of others do work like this as well, but I do it because I felt the lord tell me to.

Finally, I write books and blogs.

Why “Bible Study” Doesn’t Work


Book launch

Why “Bible Study” Doesn’t Work: The epic failure of evangelicalism’s favorite discipleship method – and how YOUR CHURCH can do something about it

BOOK DESCRIPTION

When did Bible Study become the broccoli of the Christian life?

WHY BIBLE STUDYEat more broccoli! It’s good for you! Study the Bible more… attend more “Bible studies!” It’s good for you!

Shouldn’t studying the Bible be more than simply something that is good for us? Shouldn’t studying the Bible together with other followers of Jesus actually strengthen us for a healthy lifestyle of following Jesus on the journey of the Christ-life? Did we miss a turn somewhere?

Let me ask you a question. If more (or better) Bible studies is really the answer, how in the world do we have so many people who:

• Have gone to Sunday School for decades
• Have attended, helped in, and taught Vacation Bible School
• Have participated in multiple 13-week or 40-day video-based Bible study courses
• And are Biblically illiterate and don’t have any idea how to think or live Biblically?

It seems that we have a disconnect somewhere.

I’d like to offer, in this brief book, a way of rethinking Bible study. A way that refocuses studying the Bible with the intent of making disciples. A way that emphasizes not just the “what” of Bible study, but also the “how” and the “why” of studying the Bible.

REVIEW

Gerry is inviting us to re-evaluate the usefulness of Bible studies as they are conducted at the moment. He says, ‘What I don’t believe is “Join another Bible  study group and you’ll be more like Jesus.”

Amen to that!

Thank you, Gerry. A book like yours was long overdue.
